The Joys of a Cardboard Box…

The Joys of a Cardboard Box…at Inwoods Small School, Brockwood Park.

Perceptive poem by student Mitia Klein

Mitia Klein is a fifteen-year-old student in his first year at Brockwood. He was born in France and is currently from Pondicherry in India. Before coming to Brockwood Mitia attended The School KFI (Krishnamurti Foundation India) in Chennai. We hope you enjoy this perceptive poem of his. 

Untitled

A solitary stag, walking through the rays of the serene moon,

Its coat gleaming in the shiny light, looked proudly ahead.

The soft snow under his hooves cracks silently,

Whilst his deep brown eyes focus on the path ahead.

These eyes seem to be aware of every single movement,

His ears of every single noise,

Be it the crack of a twig or the heartbeat of an owl.

Maybe the snarl of a wolf.

Half a second of absolute silence,

Shattered in a thousand pieces.

Rapid running, breaking branches and furious snarls.

Half a second of absolute chaos,

Created by both fear and lust.

And then,

An eternity of serenity and soft white snow lit by shiny moonlight rays.

The Underground Movement: Krishnamurti quotes in the London Tube

The poster campaign of Krishnamurti quotes on the London Underground began on Monday October 21st 2013, and ran for 2 weeks. Shown here is the “Truth is Pathless Land” one. There was a total of 27 across-track posters up on platforms that had 5 different quotes: “Have a complete break with the past and see what happens.” ; “Education, in the true sense, is the understanding of oneself, for it is within each one of us that the whole existence is gathered” ; “War is the spectacular and bloody projection of our everyday living.” ; “We all want to be famous people, and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free.”

The posters were unattributed, because we wanted people to engage with the ideas before thinking about the person from whom they came. However, as soon as someone visits the website kft.org they saw the quote in the paragraph to which it belongs and there was an introduction to Krishnamurti and his teachings.
